STATE NORMAL SCHOOL 

SALEM, MASSACHUSETTS 

AIMS AND PURPOSES 

The aim of the school is distinctly professional. Normal schools are maintained 
by the State in order that the children in the public schools of the Commonwealth 
may have teachers of superior ability; therefore no student may be admitted to, 
or retained in, the school who does not give reasonable promise of developing into 
an efficient teacher. 

The school offers as thorough a course of academic instruction as time permits 
and the claims of professional training demand. The subjects of the public school 
curriculum are carefully reviewed with reference to methods of teaching. The 
professional training includes the study of physiology and hygiene, and of psy- 
chology from a professional standpoint; the principles of education upon which 
all good teaching is founded; observation and practice in the application of these 
principles; and a practical study of children, under careful direction. In all the 
work of the school there is a constant and persistent effort to develop a true pro- 
fessional spirit, to reveal to the student the wealth of opportunity which is open 
to the teacher, and the grandeur of a life service. 

APPLICATION FOR ADMISSION 

It is advisable that application be made soon after January first, and that 
certificates be presented before June first. As far as possible, examinations should 
be completed in June. 

Candidates who have been admitted to the school, and who find that it will be 
impossible for them to enter, are expected to inform the office of their withdrawal 
immediately. 

In 1926, no place will be held for a student who is not present at the opening of the 
session on Wednesday, September 15, unless he has the previous permission of 
the principal to be absent on that day. 



REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION 

I. Application for Admission. — Every candidate for admission to a normal 
school is required to fill out a blank entitled Apphcation for Admission to a State 
Normal School and send it to the principal of the normal school that he desires 
to enter. This blank may be secured from the principal of the high school or 
the normal school, and should be filed as soon after January 1 of the senior year 
as the candidate decides to apply for admission. 



8 

Under the rules of the Massachusetts Department of Education, appUcations 
for admission to the normal schools of the State may not be received prior to 
January first of the year in which the candidate desires to be admitted. Appli- 
cations for succeeding years may be renewed under the same condition. 

II. Blanks to be filed by the High School Principal.^ — The principal 
of the 'high school last attended is expected to fill out two blanks, one giving the 
High School Record, and the other a Rating of Personal Characteristics, and 
send them to the principal of the normal school. ^ 

III. General Qualifications. — Every candidate for admission as a regular 
student must meet the following requirements : — 

1. Health. — The candidate must be in good physical condition and free from 
any disease, infirmity, or other defect that would unfit him for public school 
teaching. 

2. High School Graduation, — The candidate must be a graduate of a standard 
four-year high school, or have equivalent preparation. 

3. Completion of fifteen units of High School Work. — The High School Record 
must show the completion of fifteen units accepted by the high school in meeting 
graduation requirements, a unit being defined as follows : — 

A unit represents a year's study in any subject in a secondary school, so planned 
as to constitute approximately one-fourth of a full year of work for a pupil of 
normal ability. To count as a unit, the recitation periods shall aggregate approx- 
imately 120 sixty-minute hours. Time occupied by shop or laboratory work 
counts one-half as much as time in recitation, 

4. Personal Characteristics. — The Rating of Personal Characteristics and the 
moral character of the candidate, must, in the judgment of the principal of the 
normal school, warrant the admission of the candidate. 

IV. Scholarship Requirements. — Of the fifteen units presented for admis- 
sion, at least ten must be selected from the list given below in Section V, and 
must be of a satisfactory grade as determined by certification or examination. 
Three of these ten units must be in English and one in American history and civics. 
(Applicants for admission to the practical arts curriculum of the Fitchburg Normal 
School may substitute evidence of practical experience in some industrial pursuit 
to meet a part of the above requirements.) 

1. Certification. — Credit by certification may be granted in any subject in 
which the candidate has secured a certifying mark (A or B) in the last year for 
which such credit is claimed, provided that the student is a graduate of a Class A 
high school or is in the upper half^ of the graduating class of a Class B high school. 

2. Examination. — Any candidate not securing credit by certification for ten 
units must secure credit for the remaining number of units by examination in 
subjects chosen from the list in section V. 

3. Candidates are not to present themselves for examination in subjects not 
pursued during the last four years of the secondary school. 



1 These forms should be obtained from the office of the Department of Education. 

2 In 1926 these should be in his hands not later than May 28. 

3 The upper half of a graduating class shall, for this purpose, consist of those pupils who 
have obtained the highest rank as determined by counting for each pupil in the graduating 
class the number of units in which he has secured the mark of B increased by twice the number 
of units in which he has secured the mark of A.

** A maximum of two units will be accepted for admission to the Massachusetts School 
of Art. 

Additional (5 units) 

The five additional units, necessary in order to make up the fifteen units required 
for admission, may consist of any work which the high school accepts as meeting 
its graduation requirements. 

VI. Place, Time, and Division of Examinations. — Entrance examina- 
tions may be taken in June and September at any state normal school (including 



10 

the Normal Art School) at the convenience of the apphcant. A candidate may 
take all the examinations at one time or divide them between June and September. 
Students who have completed the third year in a secondary school may take 
examinations in not more than five units other than Enghsh, in either June or 
September. Permanent credit will be given for any units secured by examination 
or certificate. 

VII. Admission as Advanced Students. — A graduate of a normal school or 
of a college may be admitted as a regular or advanced student, under conditions 
approved by the Department. 

YIII. Admission of Special Students. — When any normal school, after the 
opening of the school year, can accommodate additional students, the commis- 
sioner may authorize the admission as a special student of any mature person 
recommended by the principal as possessing special qualifications because of 
exceptional and vital experience and achievement outside of school. Special 
students are not candidates for diplomas or degrees until they qualify as regular 
students, but they may receive certificates from the department upon the satis- 
factory completion of the work of any curriculum. 



KEQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION TO THE COMMERCIAL 

DEPARTMENT! 

The requirements for admission to the prescribed course of four years which 
leads to the degree of bachelor of science in education are the same as for students 
who apply for admission to the elementary and junior high departments. 

Graduates of normal schools or colleges, and graduates of approved commercial 
schools who present either diplomas from approved high schools or the equivalent 
and who have had at least one year's experience in teaching or in business, and 
other persons presenting evidence of proper fitness and of at least two years of 
satisfactory experience in teaching or in business, may be admitted to a special 
elective course of two years if conditions in the department permit. ^ An appro- 
priate certificate will be granted to students who complete such a course. 



CONDITIONS OF GRADUATION 

The following is quoted from the regulations of the State Department of Educa- 
tion for the administration of the normal schools : 

Each student who has faithfully and honorably completed a full course of study 
in a normal school, shall, upon recommendation of the principal of the school, and 
with the approval of the commissioner, receive a diploma of graduation or a degree. 
Graduates of standard colleges or normal schools may receive a diploma from the 
elementary or junior high school departments upon the completion of a satisfactory 
year's work. No diploma or degree will be given until (1) all required work shall 
have been accomplished and (2) a rank of C or better is secured in seventy- five per 
cent of the final marks in the curriculum. 

The satisfactory accomplishment of the academic work of the course does not 
constitute a complete title to the diploma of the school. The power of the student 
to teach — judged from his personality and his efficiency in practice teaching — 
is so important that one who is manifestly unable to do so will not be graduated 
whatever his academic standing may be. . 

^ The study of commercial subjects in the secondary school is not a prerequisite for admis- 
sion to this department. 

2 At present, the enrollment in the four-year course is so large as to leave no room for 
students in shorter courses. 



11 

COURSES FOR TRAINING TEACHERS OF ATYPICAL CHILDREN 

Courses for Teachers of Retarded Children : — A state law approved 
July 1, 1919, provides that all towns having ten children three or more years 
retarded ''shall establish special classes to give such children instruction adapted 
to their mental attainments." There are three hundred one classes of this type 
in the state at present. The State Normal School at Salem aims to supply the 
rapidly increasing demand for such teachers and offers the following courses, of 
which descriptions appear on page 22: (1) Psychology of the sub-normal child; 
(2) Methods; (3) Mental testing; (4) Practice teaching, nine to twelve weeks. 

Course for Teachers of the Deaf: — A course is offered for a limited 
number of students to train as teachers for the deaf. This course consists of two 
years of training in the elementary department at the normal school, v/ith observa- 
tion and practice teaching at the Beverly School for the Deaf and the day class for 
the deaf at Lynn. A third year is spent at the Clarke School for the Deaf, North- 
ampton. In addition to the diploma of the two-year elementary course from the 
normal school, a special certificate is awarded by the Clarke School for the Deaf. 

THE OBSERVATION AND TRAINING DEPARTMENT 

The Elementary Department. — In co-operation with the school committee 
of the city of Salem, the normal school maintains a training school, beginning with 
a kindergarten and fitting pupils for the high school. The training school is con- 
ducted in a modern building especially designed for its purpose. Besides thirty 
classrooms it contains an assembly hall, a library, and rooms for printing, book- 
binding, the practical arts, and the household arts. 

In planning the instruction in this school the aim is to connect it as closely as 
possible with the work in the normal school, to the end that the methods of teach- 
ing here may exemplify the theory which the normal school students are taught. 
A considerable part of the instruction in the training school is either supervised 
or actually given by normal school teachers, and the work in the normal school 
in particular subjects, as well as in the theory of education, is based largely on 
directed observation in the training department. 

In preparing students for responsible practice teaching, they are brought into 
contact with the training school during their first year in the normal school. Ob- 
servation of teaching is carefully directed by the grade super\TLSors ; written reports 
of different types of lessons taught by the supervisors are made by the students; 
and students participate in school activities so far as this seems feasible. Students 
are given the opportunity for such a series of directed observation lessons in as 
wide a range of grades as possible. General problems of classroom procedure are 
discussed with them by the director. The aim of the work is to develop a feeling 
for the problems of teaching, some familiarity with its technique, and some intel- 
ligent notion on the part of students as to the grades in which they would like to 
do their practice teaching. 

Students in their senior year are assigned to the training school for a ten-week 
term of full-time practice teaching under the direction of the grade supervisors 
whoare responsible for the progress and discipline of pupils and the continuity and 
efficiency of the lesson preparation and classroom instruction of the student 
teachers, subject to the general direction and advice of the director of the school. 

Opportunity is provided for students who intend to teach in the first grade to 
observe in the kindergarten, in order that they may become famihar with the 
theory and methods of the kindergarten and its relation to the rest of the ele- 
mentary school system. Seniors also secure a considerable amount of additional 
experience in teaching as substitutes in Salem.and in other towns and cities in 
the vicinity of the school. 

The Junior High School Department. — Those students who are preparing 
to teach in the junior high school are required to have at least twenty weeks of 



12 

practice. In the second year of the course each is assigned to one of the grades 
in the training school for a period of ten weeks. The practice in the senior year, 
for an equal period, includes teaching in the seventh and eighth grades in the 
training school, and in the junior high schools of Lynn, Chelsea, and Somerville. 
In these schools the practice is carried on under the personal supervision of the 
director of the training department, and the teachers and supervisory officers of 
the several schools. 

The Commercial Department. — The necessary opportunity for observation 
and practice teaching for students in the department is afforded in approved 
high schools with which arrangements for supervision have been made. 

Students are required to spend one-half of the third year of the course in office 
work, for pay, under actual business conditions, in positions which have been 
approved by the school; and their work in these positions must be of such a char- 
acter, both in quality and in variety, that it may be accepted for credit toward 
the degree of the department. In accordance with the rule of the Department 
of Education, this half year of practical experience must be completed not less 
than one year prior to the end of the school course.

|THE MANAGEMENT OF THE SCHOOL 

Students in a school for the professional training of teachers should be self- 
governing in the full sense of the term. Each student is allowed and is encouraged 
to exercise the largest degree of personal liberty consistent with the rights of 
others. The teachers aim to be friends and leaders. They do not withhold 
advice, admonition and reproof, when needed; but their relations in these respects 
are usually with individuals instead of with classes, and are of the most helpful 
and generous nature. Those students who, after full and patient trial, are found 
unable to exercise self-control and unworthy of confidence, are presumed to be 
unfit or unlikely to become successful teachers, and will be removed from the 
school. Others, also, who through no fault of their own, but in consequence of 
conspicuous inaptitude, or physical or mental deficiencies, are unfit for the work 
of teaching, will be advised to withdraw, and will not be graduated. 

Many matters pertaining to the general welfare of the school are referred for 
consideration to the school council. This is a representative body, fconsisting 
of the principal, two other members of the faculty, and members chosen by each of 
the several classes. Thus the students, through their representatives, have a 
voice in the management of the school, and also assume their share of the respon- 
sibility for its success. 

Regulations 

1. Regular and prompt attendance at all sessions of the school is expected of 
'every student. Those who find it necessary to be absent for more than a single 
day should so inform the principal. For all avoidable absence — including that 
for teaching as substitutes — the permission of the principal must be obtained in 
advance. 

2. Students who are withdrawing from the school Ifmst inform the principal of 
their decision, and must return all the books and other property of the school 
which are charged to them. Those who fail to do so promptly must not expect 
any recommendation or indorsement from the school. 

3. Any property of the school which is lost or seriously injured by students must 
be paid for by them. 

4. Although the school has no dormitories, it recommends to students who are 
to live away from their homes, houses in Salem where board and room may be 
obtained at reasonable prices. These houses, in addition to being suitable in other 
respects as homes for students, meet the following conditions which are prescribed 
by the State Department of Education: They receive no boarders other than 
students and instructors of the normal school; the same house does not receive 
both men and women students; the number of students in each house is limited 
to a small family group. 

All students who board away from their homes during their membership in the 
school are required to live in the houses recommended by the school. Exceptions 
to this rule are made only for those whose parents wish them to live with relatives 
or intimate personal friends; but in such cases the parents must first inform the 
principal of the school of the circumstances, in writing, and receive his approval. 
No final ari^ngement for board or room may be made without the previous con- 
sent of the principal. No change in room or in boarding place may be made by 
any student without the previous approval of the principal. 

Students living in groups in approved houses are expected to form habits which 
are to the advantage of their own work and that of their companions. The hours 
from seven to nine-thirty in the evening from Monday to Thursday, inclusive, 
should be observed as a period of study. Exceptions to this rule should be made 
•only with the previous approval of the principal. Except under unusual condi- 
tions, lights should be out by ten o'clock. If students find it necessary, for any 
reason, to be absent from the house on any evening they should inform their land- 
ladies of their plans. Boarding students may not be absent from the city over 
night without the consent of the principal. 

Those persons who receive our students into their homes, must, of necessity, 
assume responsibihty for their conduct in the same measure as would be required 



33 

of teachers or matrons in charge of school dormitories. They are therefore ex- 
pected to report to the principal any impropriety of conduct on the part of students 
which ought to be known by him or any behavior of theirs which would be con- 
sidered improper in a well-regulated dormitory. 

Expenses, Aid, Loan Funds 

Expenses. — Tuition is free to all residents of Massachusetts. Students ad- 
mitted from other States are required to pay a tuition fee of one hundred dollars 
per year, of which sum one-half is due on the first day of the school year in Sep- 
tember and the other half February 1. An incidental fee of $10, payable annually, 
will be charged all students attending State normal schools. This is due on the 
first day of the school year, and must be paid immediately. Textbooks and 
supplies are free, as in the public schools. Articles used in school work which 
students desire to own will be furnished at cost. The expense of room and board 
for two students rooming together, within easy distance of the school, is from 
eight dollars each per week upward. 

School Restaurant. — A restaurant is maintained in the building, in which is 
served at noon each school day a good variety of wholesome and attractive food 
at very reasonable prices. 

State Aid. — To assist those students, residents of Massachusetts, who find it 
difiicult to meet the expenses of the course, financial aid is furnished by the State 
to a limited extent. Applications for this aid must be made in writing to the 
principal, and must be accompanied by such evidence as shall satisfy him that 
the apphcant needs assistance. This money is received at the end of each half of 
the school year. 

Loan Funds. — Through the generosity of members of the faculty and graduates 
of the school several funds have been established, all of which, by vote of the 
Salem Normal School Association, are administered by the principal as loan funds. 
Students may thus borrow reasonable sums of money with which to meet their 
expenses during their connection with the school, and payment may be made at 
their convenience^ after they have secured positions as teachers. 

These loan funds were founded by graduates of the school as memorials to Dr. 
Richard G. Edwards, principal from 1854 to 1857; to Professor Alpheus Crosby, 
principal from 1857 to 1865; to Dr. Daniel B. Hagar, principal from 1865 to 1895; 
to Dr. Walter P. Beckwith, principal from 1895 to 1905 and to Mr. J. Asbury 
Pitman, principal from 1906 to the present time. The total amount of money now 
available is about seven thousand dollars. The principal will gladly receive and 
credit to any of the above funds such contributions as graduates and friends of the 
school may be disposed to make. Frequently a little timely financial aid from this 
source may save to the profession an efficient teacher, 

EMPLOYMENT OF GRADUATES 

Although the school can assume no responsibility for securing positions for its 
graduates, there are ample opportunities open in Massachusetts to those students 
who have maintained thoroughly good records in both the normal school and the 
training school. 

The necessity for a rate of salary which will command the services of teachers of 
native ability, through training, and a professional attitude toward their work 
has been generally recognized. Towns and cities have provided for generous 
increases, and the State, by legislative enactment, has made provision for equal- 
izing, to a considerable extent, educational opportunity through the appropriation 
annually of a large school fund. A generous proportion of this is used to increase 
the salaries of teachers in communities whose resources are limited. Graduates of 
the elementary course may now expect to receive from eight hundred to one 
thousand dollars for their first year of service; graduates of the junior high school 
and the commercial courses receive substantially higher salaries. 

The principal is constantly called upon to recommend teachers for desirable 
positions. Correct information from the alumni regarding changes in their posi- 



34 

tions and salaries is of the greatest importance to them in securing, through the 
school, opportunities for professional advancement. 

The co-operation of school officials in keeping the principal informed as to the 
success of the graduates is greatly appreciated by him. 

SCHOLARSHIPS FOR GRADUATES 

There are offered at Harvard University four scholarships, each of an annual 
value of one hundred fifty dollars, for the benefit of students in Harvard College 
who are graduates of any reputable normal school in the United States. The 
School of Education of Boston University offers free tuition for one year to a 
hmited number of graduates of the normal schools of New England, the students. 
to be selected by the faculties of the schools. 

Practically all New England colleges give suitable credit to graduates of the 
school for courses taken here. Teachers' College of Columbia University, also, is 
liberal in its attitude towards our alumni who go there for advanced professional 
study. 

NOTICES TO SCHOOL OFFICIALS 

All interested persons, especially those connected in any way with educational 
work, are cordially invited to visit the school, to inspect the buildings and equip- 
ment, or to attend the exercises in its classrooms or training school at any time and 
without ceremony. The office is open throughout the summer vacation. 

Superintendents and other school officials are requested to send to the school 
copies of their reports, directories, courses of study and other publications of com- 
mon interest. The courtesy will be appreciated and reciprocated. 



GENERAL INFORMATION 

Historical Sketch 

The State Normal School at Salem was opened to students September 12, 1854. 
It was the fourth normal school established by the State of Massachusetts. Its 
first building stood at the corner of Broad and Summer streets. This was enlarged 
and improved in 1860, and again in 1871. After twenty-five years the accommo- 
dations proved inadequate to meet the increased demands upon modern normal 
schools, and an appropriation was made by the Legislature for a new building, 
which was first occupied by the school December 2, 1896. A new training school 
building was occupied for the first time December 2, 1913. The site, buildings and 
equipment represent a value of approximately one million dollars, and it is be- 
lieved that the Commonwealth here possesses an educational plant as complete 
and convenient as any of its kind in this country. 

Decorations 

It is generally conceded that no building or schoolroom is finished or furnished 
which lacks beautiful and artistic decorations, not only because these objects are 
beautiful in themselves, but because of their refining and educative value. There 
is a silent influence resulting from the companionship of good pictures or casts, 
elevating the thought, and creating a dislike for the common, ugly, and inferior 
type of decoration so often seen. The school has many pictures and casts, the 
gifts of the students, the faculty, and other friends of the school. All these have 
been selected with great care and artistic judgment, so that the whole is harmonious. 

The Teachers and Students 

The school during its history has had five principals and one hundred thirty-one 
assistant teachers. The development of the training schools began in 1897, and 
with them ninety-nine persons have been connected as teachers. Twenty-five 
teachers are now required in the normal school and fourteen in the training school. 

Nearly eighty- six hundred students have attended the school.

The Location and Attractions of Salem 

No place in northeastern Massachusetts is more easily accessible than Salem. 
It is on the main line of the eastern division of the Boston and Maine Railroad 
system, connecting with the Saugus branch at Lynn. A branch road to Wake- 
field Junction connects the city with the western division. There is direct com- 
munication with Lowell, Lawrence, Haverhill, Rockport and Marblehead. Trains 
are frequent and convenient. Salem is also the center of an extensive net work of 
electric railways. Students coming daily to Salem on Boston and Maine trains 
can obtain season tickets at half price. Trains on the Marblehead branch stop at 
Loring Avenue, on signal, and many students find it more convenient to purchase 
their season tickets to that station. 

Salem is the center of many interesting historical associations, and within easy 
reach are the scenes of more important and stirring events than, can be found in 
any other equal area of our country. The scenery, both seashore and country, 
in the neighborhood, is exceedingly attractive. There are many libraries, and 
curious and instructive collections belonging to various literary and antiquarian 
organizations, to which access is free. Lectures are frequent and inexpensive. 
The churches of the city represent all the religious denominations that are common 
in New England. 

LECTURES AND CONCERTS 

The regular courses of instruction are supplemented and enriched by lectures 
and concerts which are given frequently throughout each year. Following is the

Picture Exhibitions and Lectures 

For several years the school has been utilizing the reflectoscope, the stereopticon, 
and the motion-picture machine to attain educational ends. Nearly every sub- 
ject taught in the school is served by these pictures. The fields of geography are 
particularly well covered. Talks on the pictures as they are shown are given 
usually by members of the faculty, but occasionally they are given by students or 
lecturers from outside the school. 

THE MUSICAL CLUBS 

A glee club, selected by competition, rehearses weekly, sings at various enter- 
tainments of the school, and gives an annual concert. An orchestra is also one of 
the musical activities of the school. 

THE ART CLUB 

The art club is an organization comprised of pupils of the school who desire to 
pursue the study of art to a more advanced degree than the prescribed courses 
permit. At the regular meetings work is done along industrial lines, which also 
includes more or less of the fine arts. There are walks for the study of various 
types of architecture; visits to the Museum of Fine Arts and studios in Boston; 
sketching trips during the spring months; and papers by the members of the club. 
A course of lectures is arranged for each season. 

THE JOHN BURROUGHS CLUB 

This club is organized for the students of the nature study classes who are par- 
ticularly interested in this work and who wish to gain a wider acquaintance with 
the out-of-doors than is possible in the regular course. Field trips and personal 
observations are the most important activities, but excursions are made to museums 
and collections of note, and the making of bird feeders, nesting boxes or shelters, 
and bird baths also forms part of the work. Talks are frequently given by mem- 
bers of the club or their friends. Regular meetings are held once in two weeks. 

THE CIVICS CLUB 

The Civics Club was established to furnish an opportunity for the entering 
class to study matters of civic interest and to have informal discussions on these 
subjects; to take trips to the Legislature and other civic meetings; and to do 
something helpful for the school. Each year outside speakers lecture. The club 
occasionally conducts patriotic exercises, prepares exhibitions of civic material, 
and presents a gift to make the building more attractive. Some meetings are 
purely social, and at others sewing is done for philanthropic organizations of the 
city. 

THE DRAMATIC CLUB 

The Dramatic Club is an organization comprised of a carefully selected group of 
students who are interested in studying the drama and who show some evidence 
of ability in producing plays. The purpose of the club is to study the develop- 
ment of the drama, with emphasis on its modern aspects. This includes a con- 
sideration of actors, authors, and stagecraft. At each regular meeting a reading 
of a short play or parts of a play make up the program, aiming toward the cul- 
mination of a more ambitious production later in the school year. Interesting 
trips are made to Boston to see some of the best plays. 

THE WOMEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION 

The Women's Athletic Association is open to all the vv^omen members of the 
school. Its objects are: (1) To create an interest in athletics among the women 
of the school; (2) To set high standards and ideals and to promote good sports- 
manship in all activities; (3) To conduct contests and give awards. 

THE MEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION 

The Men's Athletic Association is an organization of men for the promotion 
and supervision of athletic teams representing the school. Interclass games and 
the development of good sportsmanship toward each other and the school are also 
a part of its program.
